Find out more about stunning decorative painted panels created during the Scottish Enlightenment in this week’s Two-Minute Masterpiece.
Characterised by an outpouring of intellectual and scientific accomplishments, the Scottish Enlightenment is the historical period that always interested Danielle Jones, museum supervisor with Aberdeen Archives, Gallery and Museums.
